Safeguarding Adults Week is being held from 15 – 21 November. It’s a time for organisations like ours to come together and raise awareness of safeguarding issues, and to discuss the things we can do to help protect people who are less able to protect themselves.
Safeguarding is a fundamental part of the work we do as an advocacy service. We’ve produced a range of resources and blogs to explain different aspects of safeguarding, and how our processes help keep people safe. We hope you find the materials below helpful. If you want more information or advice about safeguarding, you can contact our Safeline safeguarding support line or book a training session.
